WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University Athletics Department has announced the October Bison of the Month recipients presented by Gallaudet Interpreting Services (GIS). Sophomore forward Anastasia Murray (Raleigh, N.C.) of the women’s soccer team and freshman men's cross country runner Otto Kingstedt (Stockholm, Sweden) were selected for their dominating performances on and off the field of play.
The Bison women's soccer team had nine games in the month of October and won their third game of the season against Christendom College. Murray took 28 shots and scored five goals, one in the 2-0 victory over Christendom, and two against both Morrisville St. and SUNY Cobleskill, the only goals the Bison scored in both games.
